I heard a reading of this really amazing science fiction short story on NPR the other day. I know that doesn't necessarily make it sound super interesting, but I think you should read it for yourself, it's totally short, and incredibly thought provoking, in my opinion. This story originally appeared in Omni April 1991 and was nominated for the Nebula Award. It is taken from the collection 'Bears Discover Fire' and was written by Terry Bisson. (You can find out more about Terry Bisson on his website.) I couldn't seem to find that recording, but I did find a print of it and you can read it here.
